i have a lot of ideas that i think about on a regular basis. sometimes i want to talk about them, but they are often strange and very specific, so that does not always work well. tumblr is a great place for strange and specific things though so i will write about my ideas here. that is what a blog is for, i guess.
here is an idea about isolationism within modern american society:
i think a significant contributor to this problem is our enormous, light-filled, comfortable houses. make no mistake: i love homes and think they are extremely important. but homes can be problematic when literally every thing that we could ever possibly want is housed (pun intended) in their four walls…love, entertainment, food, shelter, etc.
this is a relatively recent development in the world of Humans. for most of our existence caves and small dark houses have served to shelter us. as a consequence, we went to the markets or the streets and mingled with other Humans to avoid the small dark houses. but now, who wants to leave the house except to go to the mall, which is its own problematic situation?
looking over this post it sounds kind of stupid and trite, but these are things i think about. where is the balance? when is a home too comfortable? is that even possible?
